Sorry if this is a dumb question, but when I use the customizer, it looks like there isn't an option to change the size of the hole that you stick the dowel in. When you change the "dowel socket thickness", it makes the cylinder thicker overall, but the hole size is the same. What size dowel hole does this start with? And how do you change it? Thanks.

Not a dumb question. I designed this before customizer existed so, it was written to explicitly support it. There was some math in one of the variable assignments so customizer ignored it. I changed it, it should work now. There is now a setting for dowel size in mm.

The first version of this is too thick (3 mm). It's not flexible at all. I'm going to try one at 1.25 mm.
